O’Hara council will meet on Jan. 8 to vote on sewer rates.

O’Hara residents will pay slightly more in sanitary sewer fees this year.

Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday to amend the township sewer rates, establishing a new fee of $2.35 per 1,000 gallons, up from $2.25.

The customer service charge will also increase slightly to $5.75 from $5.65.

The increase is necessary because of expenses related to work for the administrative consent order, Manager Julie Jakubec said.

Council also will consider purchase of a 2019 Ford F 550 for the public service department.

Cost is $66,150, which includes the trade-in of a 2012 Ford F 550. Money is included in the 2019 budget.

Council meets at the municipal office, 325 Fox Chapel Road.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
